Dino Dan: Trek’s Adventures: The Complete Series is a series for young kids with a lot of excitement, and
fun adventures to go on! Kids will love this series if they have a big imagination and of course, have a love
of dinosaurs.On this DVD, there are 50 dino-filled adventures with the dinosaur expert, Trek Henderson. Trek imagines different types of dinosaurs in the real world throughout all of his experiences! While Trek’s brother, Danis away helping his dad with something, Trek takes over and entertains himself with his dinosaur world.
The goal is to finish up some of the experiments that Dan has started. Trek even meets some new
dinosaurs and marine reptiles that he hasn’t seen before! Join Trek on his wonderful adventures
throughout the world of dinosaurs!One reason I really like this show is how they incorporate educational lessons into it. It’s not everyday that you see a kids TV show that includes all kinds of educational facts within the story line. This is exactly what this series does. For example, in the episode “Trek Rex,” Trek is having trouble figuring out what dinosaur he wants to dress up as for a party. Throughout the episode, he has various encounters with several dinosaurs to help him make his final decision. Trek and the dinosaurs’ encounters happen in the real world, in front of real people, so he is imagining it. I believe that creates a connection between Trek and kids in the real world, since many have big imaginations.
The overall message in this series is that it’s okay to have an imagination and even share it with others!
Trek has no problem sharing his findings out loud for everyone to see and has no shame about doing
that. This is what kids should feel. And, sharing their findings throughout their childhood is a cool thing to
do.I rate this show 4 out of 5 stars for its playful storyline, exciting cast, imagination and much more. I wouldlove to see the storyline develop more, but it’s perfect for younger kids. I recommend it for ages 5 through 10

This series is great for keeping younglings entertained over the summer. With over 500 minutes in its 50
episodes, this will keep them busy and will keep them interested. I found Trek talking to an imaginary
dinosaur somewhat strange but hey, it doesn’t seem to bother his mom.
The storyline is about when Trek’s brother who goes away to dig up fossils and Trek misses him. Then,
one day a package arrives in the mail with a message from Dan asking Trek to help him do some
dinosaur experiments. In later episodes, he gets better and better at conducting these experiments. One
of his tasks is to find out if albertosaurus hunt in packs. For this, he gets a ham sandwich and gets the
albertosaurus to chase him.
Trek is played by Trek Buccino who lives in Toronto, Ontario and attended Claude Watson School for the
Arts. He has also been in Pacific Rim and PJ Masks. Trek’s mom is played by Allana Harkin who has
been nominated for the Primetime Emmy award for Full Frontal which she produced.
What I like about the show is that it is enjoyable to watch while you learn some facts along the way. I
recommend it for ages 3 to 8 and give it 3 out of 5 stars. It is available now on Digital and DVD/Blu-ray so,
check it out.
